1% is good, not so high, not so low.

Ours increased by 2 percent, i.e., 4.4 million newborns, I think.

BD is currently hovering just over replacement rate. It will fall below that soon.

Economic prosperity and education is the key. BD population trend will hopefully maintain trajectory.

people must have been staying at home a lot this past year. needed something to do.
Yup. You can only watch Netflix and Hulu for so many hours, then the devil directs your interest (ahem) elsewhere... :-)
Is that in line with with Bangladeshis 1.2 children per a woman?
Yes it is. If two people (father and mother) are going to be replaced by one child - I do not see it as a bad thing.

Look at Japan. Their population is so low, they have to import workers to work in their factories. Whole new set of problems, knowing they are not a country based on immigration.

yeah that is going to be a big problem for Japan. technology and robots alone isnt going to solve this problem. otherwise their society and economy will collapse. they are going to have to import people and give them citizenship, and then reverse the birth rate issues. if they import people their society will collapse anyway, in terms of ethnic groups and languages. but at least it saves their economy in the long run.

One percent population growth rate is not that big actually. It is slightly lower than global average and it take 70 years to double the population if 1% growth remain constant. But it is unlikely to remain constant. Just 20 years ago, our population was growing at 2% percent per year. In 20 years, it gone down from 2% to 1% now and falling. In the next 30-35 years, it will come down to zero and population will cease to grow completely. UN predict, Bangladesh's population will peak under 200 million in 2055 then start to decline. By the end of this century, Bangladesh may have lower population than today.

Current population growth in Bangladesh is not due to people giving birth too many children but because of youth bulge, the product of previous high fertility rate. When this youth bulge will complete their reproductive cycle and transition into older age, our population growth will end for good.

Bangladesh needs a forceful one child policy with severe penalties for parents having multiple children despite the risk of an aging population down the line. There is no way we can ever be a proper developed country (GDP per capita of USD 40,000+ in today's dollars) with such crazy population density. It is impossible to create 100 million quality jobs within such a tiny land mass.

The path to development is:
  1. One child policy
  2. Improved ease of doing business
  3. International standard Techncial and English training centres in every upazilla
  4. Decentralisation and a new capital
  5. Public-private R&D for high value addition
  6. Infrastructure development even if it requires allowing fully privatised infrastructure being built.
  7. Set up internationally accredited laboratories and certification companies.
  8. Attract investment all over the country and not just at SEZs.
  9. HIgh yield farming to free up land for secondary industries
  10. Transition away from a carb based diet to a more balanced diet to free up land from rice cultivation.
